Introducing Word of Chaos [Updated]

by Dhruin, 2006-09-15 01:23:00
Thanks to Todd for pointing out an interesting project on our forums. 'Word of Chaos' appears to be a single-character RPG where the player takes on the role of an Half-Orc, with turn-based, grid-based combat in a rather attractive, fully 3D world. Unfortunately, Hungarian developer <a href="http://www.brainfactor.com" target="_blank">Brainfactor's</a> site appears to be down (hopefully not a bad sign) but you can view a <a href="http://www.gametrailers.com/gamepage.php?id=3221" target="_blank">trailer at GameTrailers</a> and here's the game description courtesy of Google's cache:<blockquote><em>The biggest project currently under development at Brainfactor, the a SWord of Chaosa ? is an adventure/rpg that will take its players to the vast fantasy world of Worluk. The computer game was inspired by John Caldwella "!s immensely popular series of fantasy novels, the first volume of which was published more than a decade ago in Hungary. The epic tale follows the adventures of Skandar Graun, a half-orc who becomes a key figure in the eternal war between Order and Chaos when he is given the task by the God of Chaos to take revenge on the Mage Peltar for the murder of his parents and take the legendary artifact called a UThe Word of Chaosa ? from the Order-worshipping Peltar. When Skandar Graun swears to do his duty, little does he know about the fate that will haunt the Champion of Chaos and that things like revenge will not mean anything in the shadow of death. <br> <br>Players who go on an adventure in this beautifully rendered, full 3D fantasy world will have the opportunity to complete over 60 side quests, meet 300 NPCs each of whom live a life of their own, fight a hundred different monsters, learn 120 different spells (either clerical spells or spells from Magesa "! grimoires), and prepare potions by learning Alchemy or Herbalism. The open character development system and 36 different skills available allow players to decide whether to develop their characters into a fearless warrior, a thief hiding in the shadows, or a wizard casting spells by using Magical Essence. The availability of special feats adds further complexity to character development. <br> <br>This game, being developed by Brainfactor, offers a new fighting system, fight and spellcasting combos, real character development, sub-games, tales and short stories fleshing out the world around the characters, and plenty more.</em></blockquote>We'll try to dig up more information as soon as possible. <p>Update: It seems <a href="http://www.brainfactor.hu/" target="_blank">Brainfactor</a> does have a working site using a Hungarian extension (thanks Todd), Worthplaying pointed out some screens from their announcement of the game, which we missed, <a href="http://www.worthplaying.com/article.php?sid=37030" target="_blank">here</a> and <a href="http://www.worthplaying.com/article.php?sid=26885" target="_blank">here</a> and also check out additional trailers <a href="http://www.gametrailers.com/gamepage.php?id=3221" target="_blank">here</a>.</p>
